Away from the music, there's activities for families of all ages from face-painting and funfairs, to graffiti to glitter, big tops and bumper-cars to watersports and woodland walks, plus creative workshops, campfire tales, and circus workshops, and street food, pop up cocktail bars, a huge Dance Tent, a Bier Keller with live music, cafés, bars, shops and stalls. You don't need to be a camper van owner or enthusiast to enjoy the festival. You can choose your area to camp, and if you come with a tent, you can camp next to your vehicle.
Camper Calling director Shelley Mears said: "It's a true honour to welcome such legends to our festival. I believe that this is our strongest line up yet! Britrock mainstays Skunk Anansie are beyond thrilling as a live act. The Fratellis, The Feeling, Ash and Sleeper are also Brit-pop icons and masters of big sing-along indie anthems! And let's not forget Tony Christie - a living legend who's sure to get the whole festival up on their feet. I for one can't wait! There is guaranteed to be something to get you and the kids throwing shapes from noon until night. And its more than just the music, a large majority of the festival is programmed with families in mind so whether you are 5 or 105 there is something for everyone!"
